Original ASL sign.
A loanword from Auslan (Australian Sign Language), now commonly used in ASL.
This sign is often assumed to be related to a kangaroo's paws. But, the actual reason behind the sign is that England picked up and dropped British convicts off as an "exile" in Australia by ship (noted by Andrew Knox and Deaf Australians)." />
